Ascent Trip Report

Start: 12:18pm

Headed to #6 first. Parked at the triangle intersection and followed the old road into the woods till the road crested. Headed off to the right to the obvious high point by the deer stand.

Next, #5 & #4. When you turn in off Sand rd (paved), the dirt road forks. Right is a driveway to a house (wrong way). The first ~30 yds to the left is a little over grown and it feels like it is the wrong way, but left is the way to go. Parked at the gate and easily navigated to both points as the woods are pretty open and easy to walk.

Next #3 & #2. Parked on St Lukes rd at the obvious entrance. Ran in to the T and went left. Navigated off to the right to high point, then followed an older atv trail to the next point. There are campers and tents at the intersection, and I was expecting to find someone there, but everything was empty. Quickly headed back out to the car.

Last, #1. Followed the directions from previous reports and drove to Bob's house. I knocked on the door, but Bob wasn't home. So, I spoke with Bob's dog and asked permission to visit the rear field. The dog told me Bob would let me go, so I drove out to the far corner past his house. Bob (or someone in the family is obviously a duck hunter as there were ~6 different camo duck boats in the back yard. From the rear corner, I took the 2 lefts (although the second one didn't feel right, but it was) and followed the path over to a more obvious road, then bushwhacked up to the high point to the left (a little thick with prickers). Then back to the car, and left - still no Bob. I wouldn't recommend this point during deer season as there were lots of deer stands around....
